Phoned requesting appointment with Female GP. Advised no appointments today (ok), or, next week, as they were short of female doctors. I said it was a gynaecological problem, hence my request. I had discovered a lump on my vagina. Receptionist said it was probably an abscess and suggested I phone back on Monday! I should probably have said I'll see a male GP but, and I hate to say this, but I felt slightly intimidated! the receptionist is probably right and it is an abscess but it sounded so cold and clinical, I came off the phone feeling a wee bit tearful and hadn't felt a bit like that when I called!
